I have had the opportunity to source some fun Azilal rugs recently, and this one is truly such a lovely piece in excellent condition! The design is minimal and modern, and the wool is so soft. I adore the mix of cream and various brown tones. I named him Latif after the arabic word meaning "gentle". I just loved the soft colors and silky wool this one has!
Azilal rugs are known for their neutral colors, asymmetrical geometric patterns, and tribal motifs. I love the neutral color tones, making this guy a versatile piece for practically any home. I hand selected him while in Morocco, back in the spring of 2020.
ABOUT MOROCCAN RUGS:
Each vintage Moroccan rug is hand woven and knotted by Berber women of the tribal region specified. This level of craftsmanship can take weeks or months to complete a single rug. Weaving techniques have been passed down through the generations. The patterns, designs, and colors in each rug vary with each rug, weaver, and tribe – so each piece is truly a unique work of art and 2 pieces will never be the same. Often these rugs have been handed down through the families who created them, and have been uncovered from the mountain and rural areas of Morocco.
COLORS/MATERIALS:cream with brown tones. Hand woven wool with cotton. (*Please note: this rug is NOT white, but a natural cream color that is consistent with sheep wool)
ESTIMATED AGE: Vintage - approximately 20-30 years old
SIZE: 49 x 86" (not including tassels)
PILE: densely woven; medium high pile

Please note all vintage items have endured a previous life and so may have slight wear and repairs. Some holes or wear spots have not been repaired to preserve the character and integrity of the piece.
